We booked this hotel as the photos looked incredible. It boasted a pool, fitness suit, and spa. We opted for sea view delux rooms. Our bedroom looked great in the first instance until closer inspection, the balcony door was filthy, there was damp in the bathroom and mould in the shower. Our cupboard had a missing drawer which meant I... More

Reading the reviews of other travellers, I have to admit that many people see the glass half empty, while it is in fact half full! We have thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Grand Bristol! The setting is one of the best and the views are amazing. Yes, there is a crane in front and yes, you cannot... More

Gorgeous setting, lovely pool and spa, food and service nice. But, a 4 Star comes off cheap when : there is a charge for room wifi, 15 in TV on a table in the corner, handkerchief sized pillows with almost no stuffing. Great potential with views and all, but no way they can call themselves 4 star, hardly a 3.... More

Fantastic view and very nice, quiet and large pool. Lovely old building with lots of character. However, charging for (very slow) wifi in 2016 is not acceptable in a 4 star hotel. The photos of the gym on the website are misleading - there is in reality no more than a few machines by the pool. I asked for ice... More

We have just spent three nights away at this hotel and we found the staff to be positive and helpful, the rooms were clean and spacious, the facilities were good, the food was lovely and it was only a short (but very pleasant walk) into town.

Had a 3 night stay recently..we had a standard garden view room..so no beautiful sea view..but did have the advantage of it being very quiet. For those choosing the sea view ..be aware that there is no furniture on the small balconies to enjoy the view and I suspect you will get abit of noise from the road ( depending... More

Booked via Voyage Prive for five nights. The hotel is 15 minutes walk to the centre of Rapallo which is full of restaurants and bars. The hotel has an excellent pool and spa area. Breakfast was a range of hot and cold buffet and lots of choice. Staff were excellent and helpful. Our room was spacious and had a lovely... More

Very nice hotel with great views of Rapallo. Air conditioning is very hard to control. Shower is so small it is hard to wash in. Comfortable bed. You need to take a taxi or bring your car as the driveway is very steep. But this is Europe and you need to be in shape to climb. Pool is big spotless... More
